Diagnostic Medical ultrasound or medical sonography or sonogram or USG as otherwise known is a painless diagnostic imaging technique utilising sound waves to produce internal images of the body.
It is called ultrasound as the sound frequency being used is at the region of 1 to 20MHz. The human ear can’t hear these frequencies.
The ultrasound waves are produced by the transducer or the probe as most commonly known. As the sound waves travel through the body, bounce back to the transducer due to various sound transmissions differences in tissues. The returning ultrasound echoes are picked up by the probe and a powerful computer analyses the echoes and creates the 2d image on the screen.
There are various kinds of ultrasound scans that can be performed and each looks at different organs of the body such as tendons, muscles, joints, blood vessels, liver, kidneys, uterus and ovaries to confirm or exclude possible pathology. Ultrasound scan examinations are live and ideal not only for musculoskeletal exams to evaluate moving joints but also to see your baby moving.
Unlike CT and MRI, ultrasound scans do not use radiation and therefore are pregnancy friendly. Ultrasound therefore is being used in all stages of pregnancy strating from as early 5 weeks gestation age.

Benefits of ultrasound scans

  • Ultrasound scans are noninvasive.
  • An ultrasound scan exam may be occasionaly, temporarily uncomfortable, but it should not be painful.
  • Ultrasound is widely available, easy-to-use and less expensive than other imaging modalities.
  • Ultrasound scans are extremely safe and do not use any ionizing radiation.
  • Ultrasound scanning gives a clear picture of soft tissues such as liver that do not show up well on x-rays.

Risks of ultrasound scans

  • There are no known harmful effects on adults or babys related to ultrasound scans.


Ultrasound waves do not travel well in bowel or gas so abdominal organs such as stomach and bowel or organs obscured by bowel can not be fully evaluated with ultrasound.

It can also be hard to fully visualise internal anatomy of large patients as the sound waves have further to travel and therefore the returning echoes are weaker.

About  Pregnancy Scans


A pregnancy ultrasound scan is the same as a ‘normal’ scans but is being used to evaluate the overall health of your baby instead of looking at other organs such as¬†gallbladder¬†for gallstones ¬†or ¬†kidney¬†for kidney stones. So in pregnancy ultrasound scans are being used to visualise the baby, the placenta, the uterus and cervix and your ovaries.
Pregnancy ultrasound scans or prenatal ultrasounds are very common and being carried in any stage of the pregnancy.

 

When is an Ultrasound Performed During Pregnancy?


You will normally offered two ultrasound scans during your pregnancy from the NHS. The first pregnancy  scan is at 12 weeks and called a dating scan. The second pregnancy scan is at 20 weeks and called an anomaly scan.
Most of the expectant mothers, especially the ones with previous complications such as miscarriage they do not believe that 2 ultrasound scans during pregnancy are enough  and this is the reason they choose to have a private pregnancy scan in London with us.

 

What are ultrasound scans used for in pregnancy?


Depending on your stage of pregnancy, ultrasounds will be used to give you and your doctor or midwife answers about your pregnancy.


First Trimester Ultrasounds

 

 

Third trimester Ultrasounds



Some mothers to be, will, unfortunately get various complications during pregnancy such as high blood pressure, kidney infections and abnormal liver function tests. As ultrasound scans are pregnancy friendly your doctor might refer you for an abdominal/liver scan or a kidney scan to check for anything that might explain your symptoms.
Although these ultrasound scans are not pregnancy scans, they are related to pregnancy and in most cases all the complications resolve after delivery. But like everything else related to your health and your baby’s health: better safe than sorry.
